HALIFAX, Nova Scotia — Groupe Touchette Inc. has opened a distribution center in Halifax to serve the Atlantic region, marking the firm's 30th distribution center in Canada.
The company said the center, which is a leased facility, will offer improved service to customers, wider tires and a brands inventory, along with an extended delivery system adapted to the market's requirements.
This new distribution center, which represents a $1 million investment, spans more than 21,000 square feet and can warehouse close to 30,000 tires, according to Groupe Touchette. It will create three permanent positions and as many as seven more during busy seasons. That number could increase as sales volume grows, the company said.
"All of our local customers will win," said Philippe Robichaud, supervisor for the new facility. "This distribution center will enable us to provide better service, better access to products and a faster delivery capacity."
